Volunteer Clearance Forms
There are many opportunities for parents to volunteer in our schools. If you are interested in volunteering, you need to obtain the necessary clearances: a child abuse history clearance and a criminal record clearance. It takes 6-8 weeks to process these clearances, which are required for all volunteers. There are many field trips and class events planned throughout the school year that provide opportunities to be a part of your child’s school experience. Clerical assistance, classroom volunteer, and PTA sponsored events are also ways you can assist in your child’s school. The school district will cover all costs incurred for clearance checks. You can download the necessary forms below.

Dental examinations are required upon school entrance and in grades 3 and 7. These may be done by a private or school dentist, whichever the parents prefer. Scoliosis screening is conducted in grades 6 and 7. Visual acuity is tested annually in all grades. Hearing acuity is tested in grades K, 1, 2, 3, 7, 11, and upon referral by teachers, parents, and physicians. Parents will be notified of any difficulty the child may exhibit.
First Aid, Administration of Medications, and Transportation of Ill Students
The school nurse is responsible only for the emergency care of injuries and sudden illnesses, which occur while the student is in school. She is not available to diagnose or treat students who come to school with existing injuries or illnesses.
Medications sent from home must be accompanied by a note from the parent or legal guardian giving permission for the prescribed medication to be administered. All prescription medication sent to school must be in its original container, properly labeled by the pharmacist or physician. The label must state the student's name, medication dose, time and route of administration. The physician's name and prescription number should also appear on the label. A note from the physician should also accompany the medication. The medication should be brought to the school nurse or office secretary before the start of the school day. Some over-the-counter medication can be given to students if parents have given their signed consent on the student's emergency information form.
When possible, parents are responsible for transporting the ill or injured student to his/her home, the doctor, or hospital.
